Even though clothes tend to be the main attraction at fashion events, here at Showcase our ears pricked up as soon as we heard that Meadowlark was showing another stunning jewellery collection this season. The label chose to show their collections on three models who sulked in front of a pentagram at this much-anticipated show. The dramatic location and equally ethereal models all drew focus on the chunky, asymmetrical cut jewellery pieces in a range of mixed metals.
This show was the complete package – not one but two clothing lines were presented along with Andrea Moore jewellery and eyewear. What a treat! Models sashayed down the catwalk in silky jumpsuits reminiscent of the Seventies and dainty, elegant silver necklaces lined their necks. Not one to shy away from some fun, the Wink Wink show theme had eyes painted onto the models’ hands to ensure plenty of ‘did-you-just-see-that? moments’.
Roy Lichenstein was the clear inspiration for this Trelise Cooper line – flashes of colour and bold print patterns adorned skirts and jackets, with trainers complementing the modern streetwear look. Get this style with your accessories by wearing gold chains and stack rings high for a hard-as-nails urban groove. Keep hair and make up casual and simple – with clothes this powerful and accessories to match, don’t distract too much from this statement look.
